Optimised network for rapid, efficient service

Our depot network is continuously reviewed to ensure it is fully optimised. This leads to reductions in fuel usage, more effective use of resources and reductions in food miles.

It also enables us to provide highly cost-competitive services.

We continuously review our energy consumption with the aim of "voltage optimisation". Through the introduction of new, energy-efficient lighting systems we have reduced energy consumption by 75%.

In addition, all our sites use ozone-friendly refrigerants.

Latest vehicle technology

We replace our vehicles regularly which ensures that our fleet benefits from the latest engine technology - currently Euro VI standard in terms of emissions control.

The amount of CO2 tonnage that our operations generate is continuously measured and recorded. This information is reported at Board level, placing the highest level of focus on achieving reductions.

We also monitor technological developments such as new fuels e.g. LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) and undertake trials in partnership with major vehicle and fuel manufacturers.

Systems that simplify supply chains

We strategically invest in our IT systems, in order to provide clients with benefits that include EDI connectivity, RFID tag writing and product tracking, real-time, web-based POD reporting and the market leading Red Prairie Warehouse Management System.

We also use an advanced NFT Transport Management Planning system in conjunction with Microlise vehicle tracking and telematics systems to drive efficiencies and improve customer service.
